I am having MAJOR trouble with my vcr and recording stuff. Using new tapes, after 3 or 4 times recording, the vcr craps out and the tape is almost unwatchable. Lines, flipping, constant scratching noise (like scratching a record - Dopey, have you been in my house??), etc.
Our ****ing cable company is getting ready to raise its rates AGAIN. I am SERIOUSLY considering getting a DirectTv/Tivo combo.
I need opinions from people who are using (or did use) DirectTv and anyone who is (or did use) Tivo. PLEASE!
